Welcome to the Student Legal Clinic!

Free legal advice, information and referrals provided by a licensed attorney.

Convenient and Confidential

No problem too big or too small!

The Student Legal Clinic is a partner program of the Off-Campus Student Services 

Both programs share the following goals:

  • To provide information that will help students make appropriate decisions
  • To teach students problem solving tools and strategies
  • To develop community relationships that benefit students
  • To strengthen the connection between off-campus students and campus and community resources

Number of students seeking legal advice increased in 2017-18

The numbers are in: During 2017-18, 389 Appalachian State students contacted the Student Legal Clinic for help with 442 separate issues, representing a significant increase from the 327 who sought help the previous year. Consultations most frequently involved minor criminal charges, landlord-tenant issues, and traffic tickets. But students also sought advice and information about expungement, family and relationship issues, employment, lawsuits for money, and a host of other issues.
